Alice's House: French Knot Anger

Alice's House: French Knot Anger

I am having a difficult time making a french knot. I am trying to make them on my pin cushions. I have been practicing and they just pull threw. I try 1,2,3, and even 4 loops. I am frustrated. The knot doesn't seem to catch. WOuld you help me? Ellen

Hi, The key to this is to turn your needle tip back toward the fabric then, make your loop. I like to do a figure 8. It makes a perfect uniform little knot. To make a larger knot make a second figure 8. Hope this helps. :)

Thank you Laurahans1, I will have to print this out and read it as I try it. I still haven't been able to get it. Can you come to my house and give me a lesson? :) hugs, Ellen
